Francesca is creating literary masterpieces; dragonnovel
4
patrons
Hi! I'm Francesca. How would you like to become a patron of your favourite writer and her first full-length book? By 'favourite writer', I mean me.

I'm a 23 year-old marketing consultant with one blog stuffed full of politics, books and life crises (Indifferent Ignorance) and another blog stuffed full of weird and wonderful short stories (Francesca's Words). I'm currently pitching my book, *** ******** *** *** ****** *** ***** ****** **** ******* *****, otherwise known as dragonnovel 1.0, to literary agents. In the mean time, I'm sharing the first three chapters with patrons (one chapter a fortnight in January and February) to keep myself occupied while I wait to hear from agents (or not).

Why do I have a Patreon page? To connect with my lovely readers! And, er, I could do with a bit of extra breathing space financially (I already have a second job in a shop and charge clients above the living wage but #costofliving). So half your money will go directly to the Bank of Francesca and contribute toward horrendous adult expenses like pocket tissues and windscreen washer fluid, and the other half will go towards my blog and website domains and tech expenses, so I can keep blogging, writing short stories and using a working computer.

All patrons get:
  • Access to the first 3 chapters of dragonnovel 1.0
  • Your name in the thank yous of dragonnovel plus behind the scenes updates and a bunch of exclusives via Patreon
  • Early access to the short stories I write when I take a break from dragonnovel 
  • character named after you in one of my short stories and/or dragonnovel
Depending on how much you pledge, you will also get:
  • An ebook/PDF of dragonnovel (I'm hoping to get the book traditionally published - let's call that dragonnovel 2.0 - but even if I end up printing my initial draft on my home printer and stapling it together to distribute on street corners, there will be an ebook/PDF)
  • A letter or postcard from me every month with cool lil updates in my very own spiky handwriting
A Breakdown of Where Your Money Goes
10% Patreon & PayPal processing fees 
20% Blog & Website Domain & Hosting 
20% Tech & Maintenance (computer programmes like MS Office so I can write nice and legally, insurance/maintenance for said computer etc.)
50% Wages (ugh, pocket tissues)

What's more, Patreon is ongoing. If you can afford $15 to help me out, you can pledge $1 and spread it out across the year, or do 3 months of $5. Anyone who pledges (and the pledge goes through) for a full month, from March 2018-March 2019, will have their name in the dragonnovel thank yous.

FAQs! 
Can I do a one-off pledge? Can I cancel pledges at any time? Can I pledge anonymously? What the hell is Patreon anyway?
Yep! Patrons are charged on the first of every month, and if you want to only pledge once, you just have to cancel before the start of the next month. I will always see your email and payment details, which are strictly confidential, and you can request that I use an alternative name when dishing out rewards. Here's the guys at Patreon explaining how it works:

You’re British. Why are pledges in USD?
Patreon is an American site. Don’t worry, I’ll always spell it ‘colour’. Current exchange rate: $1 = £0.78. Please note Patreon may also collect some VAT depending on where you live.

Where else can I find you on the Internet?Twitter / Tumblr / Indifferent Ignorance on Facebook / Instagram / Stationery on nuMonday / Stationery on Folksy / Stationery on Etsy / Francesca’s Words on Facebook / Portfolio site

Much love, etc.
Francesca
